This is a very very easy recipe,no beater required.

the top was a ‘ wow’ dessert.

spoon for a minute.Fold in the rest of the ingredients and mix lightly till corporated

Transfer to baking tray and bake in a moderated oven for 30 minutes.

For the truffle cream

100 gm dark chocolate

1 cup fresh cream
